No evidence showing from the President's Officer website that the data is exist. http://www.myanmarpresidentoffice.info/en/ and the dedicated webpage for the cabinet ministries is empty http://www.myanmarpresidentoffice.info/en/?q=cabinet/ministries so no way to find out who are the responsible minister involve. I have found a 3rd party website http://www.ourweb.info/01/directory/myanmar/005/ that provide a list of ministries official websites but some of these websites are not found.
The closest post code data available for Myanmar is offered by the Myanmar Information Management Unit. MiMU is a service to the UN Country Team and Humanitarian Country Team, under the management of the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator. The data can be accessed here :http://www.themimu.info/place-codes. The dataset is in a proprietary format .accdb (Microsoft 2007+). In order to get geospatial dataset, an attribute-based join should be performed, by city name. We could not identify any reference that would show that the Myanmar government is officially recognizing these datasets.
